DUAL North America has announced the appointment of Tricia Loney (pictured above) as head of specialty casualty. The announcement comes shortly after the appointment of Connie Germano as chief casualty officer.
In her new role, Loney will be responsible for ensuring the long-term profitability and sustainability of DUAL's commercial automobile, construction, environmental liability, excess liability, and worker's compensation programs. She will report to Germano.
Loney brings with her a 15-year career in the insurance industry, having held various positions at carriers such as CNA Specialty and Nationwide E & S/Specialty. Her most recent roles include assistant vice president of professional liability program development for CNA Specialty and senior director at Nationwide E & S/Specialty.
“We are thrilled to welcome Tricia to our team," Germano said. “With her strong track record in cross-functional partnerships, extensive expertise in specialty casualty and her proven ability to drive strategic growth, we are confident that Tricia will play a vital role in advancing DUAL Casualty’s vision. We already have an impressive suite of casualty products available to our clients, and Tricia joining the team will undoubtedly strengthen our capabilities in the market and our ability to provide innovative solutions to our network.”
